We've been separated from our children since the hearing. The judge wants us to visit our kids no less than three times a week. However, the CPS worker originally put our two boys on the opposite side of the county. Our daughter is closer but wih a phone that is never answered. The case worker moved the boys without notifying us for three days. When she called to let us know (valentines day) she gave a non-working number to contact our youngest child (6) and informed us that our oldest child (9 with high functioning autism) would spend the holiday weekend at a DCFS command post while she enjoys her four day weekend off. She left no number to reach him. The psychological and emotonal abuse our children have experienced is greater than the accusation of swatting our kids with a fly swatter. CPS is not above torturing your child when they are angry at the parents for standing up for their rights. Homeland defense should look at the CPS tactics as terrorism since they use our children like hostages. Our children are not negotiable objects for additional federal funding. If a government will not act to enforce the laws and rights of its children and parents, the United States has morphed into a government that is not of the people, nor for the people. All this while we wait for our trail date.
My daughter was taken at 2 days old b/c of my mental hx diagnosis and I did not do anything to harm her. I was off my meds during the pregnancy to prevent any birth defects. she is now almost 5 months and I still do not have her back. They have not allowed her grandma to see my daughter in over 3 months and are ripping families apart every single day. This is snohomish county in washington state.
Please help our corrupted cps system in the state of Florida. My children have been caught up in this so call called system for 9 months. I and my children have suffered mentally from cps lies, manipulations, pencil pushing, and shall I go on? I can't express the pain and heartache this has been for all of us. They said I failed to protect, due to having a domestic violence with my husband. However, cps has done far more harm to them and I feel has abused my children, not my husband or me. Their mission is to help families, not destroy them and keep them apart.
Please help REFORM

My daughters were adopted out by cps by two different families. We tried everything to keep them in the family. Cps fought to split them up and terminated my parental rights. They offered me no services. I will continue to fight against them!!
I had 2 teenage daughters running wild in Arizona and they also were skipping school. I also put 2 adult marine pedophiles in prison because they were sleeping with them at the age of 14 & 15 years old. CPS was notified and to my disbelief the CPS turned the tables on me! They sided with my snotty belligerent teenagers and labeled me as the villain. One of my daugheters was also running with a gang and the mother of her newest boyfriend back then took her out-of-state- and into MEXICO! She was gone for 5 months. The juvenile judge put out a nation-wide warrant for her. So when she was found (and knocked up deliberately), no charges were brought against the boyfriends mother, but instead fake charges were brought against me. CPS turned right around and handed custody of my daughter over to this illegal immigrant from Mexico (the mother of her boyfriend) and given the luxury treatment. Not even a slap on the hand for her crimes with a minor child that did not belong to her. I was placed on the central registry and that's where I sit until I am 62 years old....25 year sentence for a label of "neglect." Ok...whatever.....
My granddaughter was adopted out by CPS even though I held De Facto Parent Status, without notification to me or to my attorney. When they file was reopened due to another full blooded sibling entering the foster system it was, and they admitted to it, that my granddaughter had been adopted out illegally but that there was nothing they could do to reverse it. Talk about corruption. I won't tell you how much money they made because it makes me literally ill. I have found her on FB and will be leaving the adoptive parents, who by the way are alcoholics and Rx drug addicts, as soon as she is able due to age limitations at this time. She has suffered emotional and physical abuse as the adoptive mother has made her life a life of servitude. God will have the last word. Small consolation for this child.
CPS need stop abused to Deaf parents in anyplace and Need stop to over enpower by CPS. who was threaten to Deaf single mother and anyone with a disabilities.

Often Judge force deaf mother to get C.I. or hearing aid often cannot coverage by Health insurance.

Same time C.I , Cochlear Implant often not working for everyone who deaf or hard of hearing. it is not professional to threat the deaf mother to wear C.I.

Need STOP Abuse by CPS or Judge. It is illegal to force deaf parents to get C.I or cannot afford. Go looking at Facebook under "Deaf Community Victims Advocacy".

I live in Sutter County, my grand daughter was removed by Yuba county where my son live. They placed her with the maternal grandmother who has a lengthy CPS history dating back 12 years, she has had her child removed more than once. She has 5 children of her own resides in filthy conditions, lies in court and breaks the rules by permitting her daughter to be around my grand daughter. CPS is preventing the paternal side of family from contact with child. It was proven that maternal grand mother had 19 CPS referrals which at least 3 were substantiated and 2 of the 5 children had been removed in past. Her home is unkempt and she pawns my grand daughter off on anyone she can. I passed the background check, in fact I'm a member of the trust line registry and work in hospitals and care homes. My house passed all core standards, even above and beyond and the child prior to her removal stayed with me 4-5 days and nights a week and has very close bond with me. CPS states because I was very upset in the beginning that there is more potential risk of being expose to drama with me than the maternal mother thus they have never included the paternal family in planning, court, or counseling.
This is the worst agency I have ever dealt with. They lie because they answer to no one. They are corrupt beyond belief. The agency needs to undergo major changes.
Personally I think the entire system needs to be disbanded and start fresh. These systems are so corrupt. My cousin was almost starved to death by a foster parent and DCFS found nothing wrong with it and still has foster kids
You as elected leaders of this free republic need to do your job and protect the family , the republic and our freedom.
I am tired of watching CPS tear apart a family that we've been advocating for since last June. They have overstepped their boundaries, lied, coerced, and threatened many times. They need reform now!
I also would like to add the rediculous amount of foster children/minores that are being medicated with off the label use psychotropic drugs. These agencies are not being investigated, and the Dr's prescribing these drugs illegally to minors should be prosecuted.

They had their minds made up that my nephew would be better off adopted,that my brother to raise him. He is 18 now and has been arrested for burglary and other trouble. Really? Who can decide these things? All because my brother was poor!!! NOT ABUSIVE!
Cps to my twins from illegally at the hospital. Found that out through my cousin that worked for them. She no longers works for them because she did not like the way they worked. Also with my oldest daughter was taken away from me after doing everything they asked me to do. They are crooked.
It is shocking to me that CPS has gone so far beyond the line....and that there has been, until now, NO oversight or system of redundancy to prevent these abuses! A few common-sense rules - like these - would prevent so much heartbreak. I wish we could get a primetime news show to do an investigation into CPS abuses nationwide.
These are numbers and facts that truely do not show the pain and suffering that children face at the hands of tax-payer CPS units in Arizona.
CPS is Title IV Fraud and Child Trafficking Organization. Full Task Force Investigation is Required. I am ready to assist in it.
Simply Justice...
All CRIMINAL PROTECTION SERVICE aka CPS could agents need to undergo a complete psychological evaluation!
CPS needs to be reformed my grand kids are being abused by foster parents an we have pictures
CPS has gained too much power over time, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Caring for the lives and souls of children is a sacred trust. It must not be violated. I do not wish to live in a country like Mexico where child abuse is rampant, but that is what will happen to us if CPS continues to gain more of a bad reputation with their overzealous removal of children based on malicious reports. Already, the practice of removing children from the home on insufficient grounds or evidence has caused a chilling effect on rank and file citizens: the poor no longer trust CPS to do the right thing, so they tell each other not to call CPS. What hope is there for our children, then? I pray that God will have mercy on all of us for allowing things to reach this state of affairs. Children are our future, and if we simply dump all of the poor children in foster homes, then make money adopting them out, we deserve the societal results we will see in the next 10-25 years unless things change for the better. God bless.
They need to be stopped they are hurting so many children and tearing families apart when they should be helping them..they are terminating parental rights unneccasarily for money PLEASE INVESTIGATE THANK YOU
DSS-CPS Cortland County, NY has come under scrutiny for the practice of "legal kidnapping" of children. Let's end their practice.
My children where taken away from me because I had made a "bad decision " every parent makes mistakes who doesn't no one is perfect I guess supporting my children on my own and giving them love is against the law...I should have to live life scared to know if my kids are okay if there begging hurt how they sleep or if they eat and most important if they need me I shouldn't have to wait for my kids to come look for me when they turn 18 why if all we did was love one another its been three years looking in the internet I hear all these stories about foster parents my kids are safer with me how do I know if there still alive I want to see my baby's and there are time in life where I feel no point in life if they where my reason I fight a disease now on my own and if I could see them smile like the old days this disease would have been gone all I want and all I ever asked for Christmas was to see my kids and never have to say goodbye but I guess this mother well never see the joy of life again.
CPS ARE ROTTEN PEOPLE WHO RIP INNOCENT CHILDREN AWAY FROM GOOD PARENTS AND THIS NEEDS TO STOP!!!!!!!!!!! TAKE CHILDREN AWAY FROM THOSE THAT ACTUALLY HURT CHILDREN NOT THOSE THAT LOVE THEIR CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CPS ARE SUCH*****HOLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Tried not to swear but had to get my point across)
This is very important. There is so much put on innocent parents and CPS has the same authority and answerability as the Nazi SS.
This NEEDS to change! I used to think it would be a good job, to SAVE children! I change my mind, my daughter was kidnapped by CPS, claiming she's "socially delayed". She's 4 and they didn't allow me in the room! Take away her safety and security (me) and you're just going to be a "stranger" to her!
My husbands step mother worked for cps she made false allagations an took my 2 youngest.She aused my child for years an covered it up everytime it was looked into fter years of this caught up to her an now she got fired.But i dont have my rights back to them that is so un fair
The authority they are given is completely wrong. In my experience with them to say they are acting in the child's best interest is total bull. I've never even had any direct accusations against me but now after terminating my mother's guardianship they are trying to terminate my parental rights and I'm just left feeling helpless.
i have lost many brothers and sister to the cps system and i think it needs reform because they are just not right. Did you know that they get a bonus for evrey kid that they adopt out? that's why they take kid out of homes for no reason at alll there are some that dont need to stay in the homes but then so do.
I pray god will forgive them for the Barahona twins. How much more will it take? We need reform! Children are tortured for your bonus. Enjoy your money! The children sure are paying for it!
This can't be tolerated.
